IMS was a group of scientists, artists, curators and a composer who occupied Guest Project Space for the month of March 2012. An experimentally inclusive structure meant participants' individual research clashes and colludes within the project space in the form of artworks and public interactions.
The residency also included a regular series of public events bringing eminent scientists and artists together for debate, film screenings and performances. Orbiting around the residency, a weekly radio show broadcast IMS projects worldwide from Hackney-based NTS Radio. In a counter-movement, an international arm of the IMS operating from Mexico, Colombia, and France monitored progress and project their voices back into the interior.
The program was put together by Johann Arens, Sam Basu, Martin Clarke, Anne Duffau, Ignacio Gallo, Rishi Nalin Kumar, Peter Lewis, Daniel Lichtman, JL Murtaugh, Isaac Muñoz, Miguel Pacheco, Alicja Rogalska, Liliana Sanchez, Chooc Ly Tan, Christopher Thomas, Jessica Tsang, and Jill Van Epps.
